South Coast Ultra

Image
From when I heard South Coast Ultra was happening this year at Møns Klint, I was determined to do the 30km race, and I was so looking forward to it😁 I loved racing there last year, so had no doubt in my mind I wanted to do it again.

The race
The last two weeks leading up to the race, my body has just felt off, and during this race both body and mind was off. I'm in the front for the first 2km when a girl catches up to me, we run side by side for about 1km and then she slowly pulls off, and I never see her again until I crossed the finishline. I wanted to chase her, but I had no power in my steps and I didn't feel like I could increase my pace, there just wasn't a different gear I could change to.


After 10km I was really struggling and didn't feel well, I started debating if I should just stop, a million thoughts went through my head "how would I get back to the start area?", "how would I tell my parents I stopped? I don't have a phone" (they we…

Marathon Du Mont-Blanc

What started out as a spontaneous idea in October 2018, turned in to an amazing experience with lots of challenges way before the big race, 42km at Marathon Du Mont-Blanc.Leading up to MMB I had been dealing with many minor injuries on and off since January (at least that’s how it feels). For those who know me well, I think it’s fair to say I have been quite emotional about this race and determined to do it, even at times were I couldn’t run.In February when I couldn’t run due to issues with my knee, I knew I had to change my focus in my strength training to focus on building stronger legs that’s could help me get through this.There’s no doubt in my mind that all those hours spent in SATS doing rehab exercises and other rather boring non-Instagram worthy exercises have helped me get through the race.

2018 in pictures

Here is my 2018 in pictures, they pretty much sums up my year😊

The year included lots of bouldering

My first OCR race of the year, 19km Strong Viking in Germany
The year included lots of trail races, this was my first ever 1st place finish
Nordic Race Hasle Bakker is one of my favourite OCR races in Denmark
One of my favourite trail races was SkyTrail at Himmelbjerget
A fall from Reborn's Stairway to Heaven at OCR European Championship changed the year

First race after I got my cast off, my hip flexor gave me so many problems, which continued the rest of the year
Best running experience of 2018 is without a doubt Møns Klint, such as an amazing experience, love running on rolling rocks
The one race I wish I had never done; lesson learned! Don't run when you're injured!
Longeste OCR race (and run) at Spartan Race Beast Barcelona
Looking forward to many more amazing running experiences in 2019
